Beautiful and stylish holiday decor does not have to come with a big price tag. In fact, some of the best Christmas decor I’ve seen has been created by hand by the homeowner themselves with a little creativity. Some of the easiest and most affordable elements to use in DIY holiday decor are ornaments. They come in every color, shape, and size imaginable so what you can create with them is only limited by your imagination. Plus, you can control your budget very easily because you can pick up pretty Christmas ornaments very inexpensively. Even the Dollar Store has a nice selection. So, without further adieu, here are 8 DIY ideas using Christmas ornaments for decor:
